In late June, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed the country's 13th case of BSE in a cow located in British Columbia. Canada's BSE safeguards prevented any part of the animal from entering the human food chain or any potentially infective parts from entering the animal feed chain. The animal was detected through Canada's national BSE surveillance program. CFIA has launched a comprehensive investigation in an effort to determine the birth farm of the animal.
